MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. Ukraine’s forces opened fire on the territory of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic two times over the past 24 hours, local militias said on Thursday.
The shelling was carried out with the use of 120-mm mortars that were banned under the Minsk agreements of February 2015 and were to be withdrawn from the contact line.
"Besides the mortars with the caliber of 120 mm, fire was opened at the Kalinovka village from the direction of the Luganskoye village from infantry combat vehicle, automatic mounted grenade launcher and large-caliber machine gun," a militia member told the LuganskInformCenter.
No casualties have been reported.
The ceasefire in the war-torn Donbass has been into force since January 14. However, Kiev forces and the self-proclaimed republics continue accusing each other for violating the "silence regime."
